Dean Jones does not expect Tottenham to try for Manchester United star Jadon Sancho in January
The footballing world has been abuzz with speculation surrounding Jadon Sancho’s future, especially after his tumultuous stint at Manchester United. With transfer insider Dean Jones weighing in on the matter, it seems Tottenham Hotspur may not be eager to pursue the Manchester United flop in the upcoming January transfer window.
Sancho, once a shining star at Borussia Dortmund, made the high-profile move to Manchester United for a staggering £73 million. However, his transition to the Premier League has been anything but smooth sailing.
Under the stewardship of Erik ten Hag, Sancho has struggled to cement his place as a regular starter in the lineup, and their relationship has unravelled in dramatic fashion, especially in recent weeks.

The rift between player and manager became glaringly evident when Ten Hag publicly cited Sancho’s subpar training performance as the reason behind his exclusion from the squad for a crucial clash against Arsenal
In response, the former Dortmund player took to his social media account to refute Ten Hag’s claims, insinuating that the Dutchman was not being truthful. In the wake of this public fallout, Sancho’s future at Manchester United has grown uncertain.
While Tottenham were linked with Sancho during the summer transfer window, Dean Jones now suggests that Spurs might not be actively pursuing the winger unless an “easy loan” or an exceptionally affordable deal becomes available.
Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones expressed his doubts about Tottenham’s interest in Sancho, stating,
“It doesn’t feel like the sort of move Tottenham are going to be looking for in the January window, from what I can tell at this stage. So, I wouldn’t necessarily expect them to need to come back in for Jadon Sancho unless an easy loan or a really cheap deal opened up.”
From a Tottenham perspective, it appears increasingly unlikely that the club will make a move for Jadon Sancho in the upcoming January transfer window. Currently, the team boasts a wealth of attacking options, including the likes of Son Heung-min, Dejan Kulusevski, Richarlison, Manor Solomon, and the promising new signing, Brennan Johnson.
